Pronounced: huh-BILL-uh-muhnt, noun
Notes: Not a word that can used as much in modern times
The word campanile means “a bell tower; especially one detached from a main building such as a church”
The word came into English in the mid-1600s
Background / Comments
Personally, I would tend to use the second pronunciation of the word (see yesterday’s entry). Our word comes from the Italian word campana (bell), which came from the Latin word campana (bell).
